Potential Risks for Pest Infestation

With a large and growing population and commercial and residential areas, Capalaba has its share of pests. Since pest problems are cropping up more and more, so are pest control services. Hygiene, or the neglect of it, is also contributing to pest issues, including termites, cockroaches, rodents, ants, spiders, and more.

Cockroach Treatment 

The most common cockroaches in South East Queensland, including Capalaba, are the American, Australian and the German cockroach. Cockroaches are usually found indoors because they prefer warm environments. They can also be found in parts of the homes or buildings where food and water are easily accessible. Cockroaches are harmful to humans because they carry pathogens that cause various diseases.

Cockroaches are resilient, capable of surviving for almost a month without food and can live for two weeks without water. They are also prolific breeders. A female can have as many as 10 million babies per annually. These factors make cockroaches hard to eliminate. The best treatment solution is to target their habitat by using barriers to block their entry into a property.

Rodent Control 

Rodents can pose problems both in residential and commercial properties. Rodents can transmit a number of diseases to humans. They are voracious that they can destroy belongings and properties. When rodents nest, they can easily compromise a building’s structure. Thus, it is imperative to treat a rodent infestation as soon as possible.

Ant Control

Ants thrive in Queensland’s sunny climate. Like cockroaches, they’re not easy to kill. Garden and black ants will go anywhere in search food. This is why ants can usually be seen in areas where food is stored or prepared like kitchens, countertops, pantries, etc.

Ants can enter a building even through the tiniest of cracks while in search of water and sweet or greasy food. Ant control is not simple because of their nest structure, behaviour and large population. An ant spray may kill the ants you do see, but it’s not likely to affect the nest. This means there’s more of them and they will come back. Also, home remedies is a one-size-fits-all solution. Different kinds of ant infestations need different treatments.

Silverfish Treatment

This tiny, wingless, silver-grey pest are active at night and usually live in damp and dark areas. They are particularly attracted to bookshelves and cupboards. They love the sugar and starchy substances that are commonly found in an average home. Silverfish also love mould, paper, glue in books, book bindings, cotton, photos, silk, cotton, carpets and other common household items.

There are measures you can take to keep silverfish away. Reduce the dampness in your home by checking for leaks in the kitchen and bathroom and using humidifiers, if you can. If you discover silverfish-infested places, you can use pesticides or boric acid dust on the affected area.

Spider Treatment 

Spiders are arthropods with around 40,000 known species. They are diverse in size, colour and behavior. They have fangs that inject venom that can sometimes be fatal. This venom is used for hunting or for when they are threatened. Some spider species spin silk webs that are elastic and waterproof.

Not all spiders are dangerous. There are only about 2% that are potentially harmful. The rest are no threat to humans and only attack when threatened. A venomous spider’s bite can be cause pain, swelling, itching, nausea or system failure leading to death, in extreme cases. The spiders that are known to be deadly are the black widow and brown recluse.

Termite Treatments 

Termites feed on cellulose that are present in wood, timber, paper, etc. They usually attack the hidden areas of a building, working their way from under the flooring, up the wall cavities, along plumbing works, etc. They can literally a whole house if left unmitigated because termites eat 24/7.

Houses should be inspected for termites at least once a year. Older homes should be inspected because their original termite barrier may already have expired or have come loose due to the numerous renovations it had undergone. Termite penetration can be prevented effectively through metal or rock physical barriers, or chemical barriers, or installing termite bait stations.

CapalabaTermite Hazard Level

High – Very High Risk

Termite Hazard Level Gauge image

According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Redlands area, where Capalaba is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.

Because Capalaba is close to the sea, the area is a good target by drywood termites, which need high moisture content in the timber they attack.

Throughout Queensland, the most commonly found termites are Subterranean termites and Drywood termites.

The West Indian drywood termite, is the world’s most destructive drywood termite. It is the culprit to massive economic damage to timber houses in Queensland, including properties in Capalaba.

  • A coastal environment like Wynnum is prone to termite and vermin attacks.

  • The number one thing that attracts termites is water or moisture. It is almost a guarantee that if a home has water leakage problems, it will soon be invaded by termites, if it hasn’t been already.

  • Damage to homes, whether made from weatherboard, is likely if termites, or white ants, are left unchecked.
